Thursday, July 27th, was the debut of our first-ever Career and Internship Expo, generously hosted by Amazon at Day 1 Tower in South Lake Union. Over 80 Rainier Scholars students, from high schoolers to college to alumni, met with representatives from 30+ companies
and organizations sharing career insights, employment opportunities, and effective strategies for building one’s personal brand through LinkedIn, resume and interviewing.
This was a far cry from a typical career fair. Instead, scholars at the Career and Internship Expo were encouraged to bring their questions and LEARN through real conversation rather than hurried booth visits where attendees compete with the masses just to be seen.
